Sangria is my all-time favorite alcoholic drink. I love how the red wine Sangrias taste but I love the look of Rose / Pink wine Sangrias – a photographer’s wet dream. Same with white wine Sangrias. In the one you see here, I’ve used fruits and honey : two kiwis and four oranges plus two tablespoons of honey. The additional alcohol was Honeybee Brandy 90ml and the wine used is Grover’s Shiraz Cabernet 540 ml.
Leave the Sangria overnight in the refrigerator. At least overnight. Some of my best Sangrias are the ones I’ve kept planning overnight but forgotten for a week. The taste changes – mellow – and yet the alcohol somehow gets stronger. I sometimes freeze mine in bottles and then serve chilled. No ice to dilute the taste.
The only thing I hate about Sangria is that it takes a while to prepare but disappears before you know it – especially if there’s a bunch of people. Always helps to make 6 to 8 liters between 4-6 people. At least this side of the world *wink*
